About Us

A Fiercely Independent Agency


Born Storytellers. Built for Impact.

Some call us a PR agency, some a digital marketing agency, some a creative agency. We defy those labels because we are all of that and more. What matters is the right content in the right channel to drive business and societal change.

What It Means To Be Green

We are purpose driven and committed to a culture that invites everyone to be their authentic self, to push limits and to embody our 'Fearless Pursuit of the Unexpected'.

Given the world we live in and the need for business to be more and do more, our purpose is embedded in our everyday actions and inspires all that we do for our clients and ourselves to make a positive impact on people's lives and in society.

Our Purpose

We champion the courageous to achieve something better for humankind.

True to Our Word

Check us, we don't mind. Holding ourselves accountable ensures we stay true to what we say and do. Each year, we outline our progress on commitments to our people, communities, and the planet in our ESG Report: Toward Something Better. These commitments are driven by our dedicated global team, who tirelessly embrace and advance our purpose.

At Zeno, “fearless” is not just a mantra for how we do business. It’s also about the culture we strive to cultivate, and our constant pursuit of a dynamic, inclusive workplace.  Zeno is for everyone.

We are shaping an environment that welcomes every race, ethnicity, gender expression, sexual orientation, socioeconomic class, religion, nationality, citizenship, age, ability and political affiliation. Zeno is committed to fostering a global workforce where all employees feel valued, included and empowered.
